10 Critical Steps to address Child Under-nutrition in Zambia, permanently

This brief from the Zambia Civil Society Scaling Up Nutrition Alliance (CSO-SUN) outlines recommendations made to the government for the first 100 days for a Successful First 1000 Most Critical Days Programme.
 
These 10 recommendations are as follows:

1.Build political will to tackle under-nutrition;
2.Ensure effective high-level national coordination;
3.Increase spending to address the nutrition crisis;
4.Address the serious gaps to ensure adequate human resources at all levels;
5.Create transparent financial mechanisms to protect nutrition funding;
6.Reform existing programmes to increase their effect on nutrition;
7.Provide clear public data and information on emerging evidence and strategy;
8.Ensure effective decentralized coordination at Provincial and District Level;
9.Provide financial incentives to engage the private sector to tackle under nutrition; and
10.Engage Civil Society as a partner in the fight against under-nutrition,

They are made to improve current plans and accelerate progress towards a Zambia where all children can see their rights to adequate nutrition, and full life potential, fulfilled, no matter where they were born or where they live.
